Abstract:

The problem is defined as examining a list of the research projects presently sponsored by the Department of the Navy under GOR-43 and analyze the ordered project listings as ranked by panels composed of persons with interest in those projects. Data consisted of project priority rankings of 193 judges composing 9 separate panels, each judge ranking the projects twice in priority order once considering the practical significance of the project and once considering the possibility of a successful research effort. Project rankings of judges within each panel were scaled using the FORD procedure and the 9 panel rankings then investigated for similarities using methods of cluster analysis.
